1:45 PM EDT — TEMPLE MOUNT BURNING — Bomb Shelters Opened as Rocket Barrages Hit Israel; Rocket Attack Sirens sounding in cities throughout Israel
11 May, 2021
Israel is in absolute chaos at this hour (12:14 PM EDT) as Palestinians retaliate for Israeli attacks against worshipers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Two days ago, Israel stormed Muslims third holiest place, the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Twitter is full of videos of Israeli soldiers attacking the site.
They are also evicting Arab people living in a neighborhood in Jerusalem and giving the houses to Jewish people.
Palestinian groups said 18.00 Jerusalem time, rockets would be launched if Israel doesn’t pull back its troops from and release all Palestinians imprisoned last 3 days.
Israel refused to meet the ultimatum and ONE MINUTE after the deadline, the rockets starting launching.
Dozens of rockets have already been launched and the barrages against Israel continue at this hour.
In at least one circumstance, a Kornet anti-tank weapon (file photo above) was fired at an Israeli Military Vehicle, destroying it.
Air raid/Rocket Attack sirens are sounding in cities all over Israel and BOMB SHELTERS have been opened for people to take shelter.
Sources inside Israel tell the Hal Turner Radio Show “This is unprecedented.”
Sounds of numerous explosions are being heard in — and above — Jerusalem. Not sure if these are rocket interceptions, or rocket impacts.
Elsewhere, the government of Turkey has publicly called Israel an “apartheid state”, adding that the violence in Jerusalem was an “attack on all Muslims.”
This is a rapidly developing story; live updates to appear below . . . check back
